There’s actually a few books that have changed my world that I’ve gifted. The first is reading The Spirit of St. Louis by Lindbergh, and the setting is his story of this epic adventure in 1927 of crossing the Atlantic and doing it for a $24,000.00 prize. I was amazed at this man’s determination and the way he thought about this and took the risk out and then made this epic journey.
